A new smart refrigerator even lets you manage your inventory by creating a list of groceries and automatically adding items to it. If you are at the store and forget the list, you can simply access it from your mobile device.
Embrace the Technology
If you are a broker selling a home with smart technology, make sure you take the time to go over all it can do with the sellers so you can offer an expert opinion on the features when showing the home. Hearing a house has an automated lighting system will make a house hunter stop and listen, but if you can’t explain how it works, that interest will quickly vanish.
Understand what makes having these in the home so great and express those feelings when talking with clients. Many millennial homebuyers are seeking the latest and greatest technology and gadgets and as the “new face” of the buyer’s market, you want to impress them with your knowledge of smart technology.
You can also cater to the green buyers because a smart home benefits the environment. Less power usage leads to higher sustainability and reduces pollution. These systems will also reduce energy bills, allowing you to control when lights and systems are on, and more importantly, off.
Remember, smart technology is the future of homes so it’s important that you learn to appreciate all it can offer your buyers. A home with the latest gadgets and smart technology will pique the interest of a homebuyer and may lead to a quicker sale at a better price.
